How to apply for building regulations approval
If you think that your project will need approval you can apply to your local building control team by:
- Applying online through the Planning Portal.
- Filling in your council's online or offline application form. You can do this yourself at your local council office, by downloading and sending it by email, or online through their website, or in some cases over the phone. (Visit the council website or call your local team (find their details here) and they will guide you through the process.) You'll usually have to call to see what your project fee will be, and you can often pay by using a phone card or through the secure payments system of the council's website. The application form, your fee and any plans to the building management team will need to be sent for registration and inspection.
